Has everyone everyone ever had a cologuard?

My doctor recommended I have one due to family history and over 50.

Will get results within a week.

Hope you all are fine tonight.

Amy, have you had a colonoscopy before?  The preparation is not fun, but it can deal with suspected early cancers.

 Hi Iris, yeah this is first time I got instructions before test. I had a (DRE) several years ago not fun.

I have a family history of colon cancer. 

I have an older brother with dementia and colon cancer living in a nursing home.

Amy Joy, I will pray that your colonoscopy will be completed with no need for follow-up, with no cancer or pre-cancer or any other issues!
